Winter is here and we have some color in the landscape thanks to Viburnums. Viburnum tinus and Viburnum x bodnantense. V. x bodnantense has tubular flowers on bare branches. It's hard to miss in the landscape.
I personally witnessed this pruning job and weeks later it's still there, including the clippings on the ground. It's hard to believe some people charge money for this "service". Now you know why the Landscape Industry Certified program exists. It shows workers have skills; it validates their skills. Get certified. Don't do work like this.
Hostas to clean up, cedars to shear, deep edges to establish, perennials to cut back, grasses to take down and Spireas to shear.
